GL Communications has announced its enhanced T1 E1 Analyser product line - now Version 11.1.17. This version has 64 bit T1 E1 sub-applications for 64-bit Windows Operating Systems for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10 (32-bit, and 64-bit).
Speaking to the press, Mr Vijay Kulkarni, CEO, GL Communications, said: “T1 E1 lines are used extensively throughout the world for carrying large volumes of calls containing both voice and data. Their popularity can be attributed to their TDM architecture, high reliability, manageability and flexibility. The significance of this latest release is the performance limitations observed with 32-bit applications are addressed by introducing 64-bit applications to achieve the enhanced performance.”
While emphasising on the adoption of 64-bit Windows OS, he added: “64-bit Windows OS improves the performance of Protocol Analysers viz., ISDN, ISUP, GSM. Protocol Analysers now allow users to monitor ‘hundreds to thousands of signalling links’ simultaneously and continuously. It has also significantly improved processing and response time for statistics, call data records, search and other such functions.
The ‘client server’ commands can now support ‘thousands of tasks’ simultaneously with number of successful thread creation. This helps to run Tx Rx File, Tx and Rx Tone and Tx Rx Digits on 24/31 Timeslots * 8 Ports * n (where n is the number of Octal T1 E1 Cards).
CCA applications can now invoke multiple instances to Capture T1 E1 Data of different cards.
Load and stability testing for protocol simulators: MLPP, PPP, Frame Relay, TRAU improved where applications can now simulate up to 16 T1 E1 trunks simultaneously. Enhanced protocol emulators in our MAPS platforms provide improved performance for load generation and simulation of Protocols on 16 T1 E1 ports.”
Mr Kulkarni further explained: “WCS Fax Simulator now supports for fax over v27, v29, v17 and v34 ITU-T modems. The simulator now supports multipage fax image transmission i.e. up to 1,300 pages can be sent per fax call. Detailed fax call flow can be obtained during the call. The fax simulator now provides statistics details depicting the nature of the call and result on call termination."
The T1 Record Playback application now enhanced to include 'T1 Demux' utility. The utility is used to split the T1 file containing the T1 trunk traffic into 24 individual files. Each file has its own time slot traffic that is recorded in 'WAV' or 'WAV and MP3' format at user-defined bit rates configuration. It's available only for T1 installations.
Physical layer analysis includes ability to send alarms and errors via SNMP Traps and SNMP Traps capability can now be added to all protocol analysers on customer request.
Enhancements made across Protocol Analyser platform include the pre-defined statistics feature that allows multiple windows to be opened with different summarised statistics based on the primary statistics already implemented in analysers. These windows support multiple column stable sorting. All protocol analysers now include improved statistics dialog GUI.
A new feature has been added to HDLC TX/Rx Test application for generating random variable frame length with random flags and in CAS Analyser support for Audio-R2 protocol has been added. The enhanced TRAU Analyser now provides automatic detection of uplink and downlink direction.”
He further added: “There are also enhancement across our MAPS platform applications that include: All MAPS TDM applications are now enhanced to work with remote MAPS client, which allows users to control MAPS application remotely and automate the entire testing process. New licensing method allows applications to be licensed either locally or through remote licensing servers.
MAPS FXO/FXS supports CAMA monitoring performance profiling, script debug and script coverage.
MAPS supports Java, VB and Python clients that can interface with customer test environment easily by providing high level APIs. All MAPS applications can now provide Java, VB, Python and TCL API's to simulate customised call scenarios.”
